small business marketing | LMS Solutions

Who are we? We’re a bunch of fun-loving people that are serious about helping our clients.

We love what we do, love the industry we work in, and we love the fast-pace of change in today’s marketing world.

Some may call us quirky, but nobody calls us dull.

We are extremely proud that we’ve been ranked by the Philadelphia Business Journal as one of the area’s top Marketing Agencies, for the last six years straight.

Whether you are a brand new start-up or an established company, our mission is the same: to help you find greater success through effective marketing.

At LMS Solutions, we embrace the fast-paced change associated with today’s emerging marketing platforms. We’re always evaluating and leveraging the most cutting-edge technology – mix that in with our immensely talented and results-driven team, and you get the recipe for success. It’s also why our clients’ marketing outperforms their competitors, enabling them to steal market share and increase both sales and profits.

We strive to level the playing field, offering the same marketing platforms utilized by the Fortune 500 companies at affordable rates for any size business.  We can help a start-up rank as high (or higher) on Google as a multimillion dollar company, and have the same professional presence on social media platforms such as Facebook. We can give established businesses new life by revitalizing their marketing designs and approaches.

When you work with LMS Solutions, we become an extension of your company: an in-house marketing department of sorts. You get a team of Online, Local, Mobile, Social Media and General Marketing experts that work hard on your behalf. Our results speak for themselves, but nothing makes us happier than hearing about our clients’ successes.
